MPD sound output issue


Hi,

I just discovered MPD and I am testing some clients for it. I have it working fine on the music server, but when I connect from a client the sound outputs on the server. I have tried the settings below but it doesn't help.

audio_output {
type "alsa"
name "My ALSA Device"
device "hw:0,0" # optional
format "44100:16:2" # optional
}

I want to have the sound output on the client (where I'm running the client software).

Also, is it possible for two people to connect and play different songs? Or will the server only stream one song at a time?

Thanks

The audio_output you have configured is for local playback. You need to set it up for streaming:

OK thats great thanks. I did stumble on that page but confused "local" with "remote". I'm streaming through VLC now, but it seems silly to control the playlist with an MPD client and listen to the stream with another piece of software. Is an MPD client not capable of playing the stream?

AFAIK, MPD is a server and needs a client to be controlled. See below:
